R

A patient who is fully informed is a relaxed, responsive patient, which is why we listen to you and take the time to answer your questions.

R

Only a qualified surgeon should determine suitability and advise patients on treatment. This is why you will never see under-qualified or inexperienced staff at our clinic.

Most asked questions:

How safe is laser eye surgery?

Laser eye surgery is extremely safe. In fact, it is one of the safest surgical procedures in the world. As with any surgical procedure, there will always be a degree of risk, but this is very minimal. On top of being one of the safest procedures in the world, we provide an extensive suitability screening process.

How many years does laser eye surgery last?

The benefits of laser eye surgery are generally permanent, but in a small percentage of cases, retreatment or enhancement may be required. The average percentage is around 1% per year. We offer a 10-year guarantee, which means that if you do require retreatment or enhancement, we will provide this completely free of charge. Read More

How long does it take to recover from laser eye surgery?

The immediate recovery period is about 6 to 12 hours, but it varies by patient, depending on several factors. Most patients see clearly within 24 hours. Immediately after laser eye surgery you will experience blurry vision for 3 to 4 hours. Because of this, you will not be able to drive yourself home and it is recommended you take a nap and relax for the rest of the day.

The day after your procedure, you will return to see your surgeon so they can assess how you are healing. Most patients are cleared to return to work after this visit. Read More

What are the 3 treatment stages of laser eye surgery?

Suitability Examination

The first step is to undergoe a suitability examination. Approxiately 10% of people are found to unsuitable for laser eye surgery.

This examination should be carried out by a fully qualified consultant ophthalmic surgeon - the same surgeon who is to perform your laser eye surgery.

As one size never fits all, a thorough assessment of your eyes will be carried out, and only then will your consultant ophthalmic surgeon recommend a treatment.

TIP: Always make sure it is your surgeon who performs this initial examination.  Then he or she will be fully accountable to you for the outcome. Some unscrupulous clinics offer you one thing at the examination then just before surgery the surgeon tells them it may not be as originally discussed but by then you have paid and are fully committed.

Laser Eye Surgery

While most patients come to us with an idea of which treatment they want, after a consultation, eye exam and medical evaluation they often choose something different based on being fully informed.

On your treatment day you will be required to attend with someone to accompany you and take you home afterwards, as your vision will likely be blurry and not safe for driving.

Before treatment, you will see the surgeon again who will check your eyes for a final time.

TIP: You should never be seeing your surgeon for the first time. This is practise is frowned upon in the industry and blah blah medial associations. 

Laser eye surgery treatments are usually no longer than 15-minutes in total.

Once surgery is complete your surgeon will conduct a final check on your eyes and confirm that he is happy for you to leave the clinic.

Essential aftercare

To ensure you get the best results, your aftercare is just as important as the treatment itself.

This is why you will be given a tailored aftercare plan and we will be available at any time if you have any questions.

As well as follow-up appointments to ensure your results are as expected.

It is very important that you attend your aftercare appointments as recommended by your surgeon and all necessary aftercare is included free of charge within 12 months of your treatment date or until you are discharged.

If, during an aftercare visit, it is deemed that a retreatment is necessary in order to improve your visual results, we will provide this for you with no aditional charge for your aftercare, or retreatment.

What eye conditions can we treat?

Are you tired of wearing prescription glasses or fed up with contact lenses and their maintenance? Are they interfering with your driving or playing your favourite sport?

These are typical reasons we hear at our laser eye surgery Dublin clinic as to why people are intererted in having laser eye treatment.

I had laser eye surgery last September. I had a very high prescription and chose this clinic because aftercare with the surgeon was very important. I hadn’t realized that other clinics were charging extra for high prescriptions. I think it is important to let people know what to look out for, that’s why I’m posting. I’ve perfect eyesight now and thrown away my glasses after 25 years!

Aftercare Programme

Had my surgery two weeks ago and cannot believe the difference already. Eyesight is perfect and no side effects. Fifteen minutes extra in bed every morning as I don’t have to put in lenses and I don’t have to hide indoors when it’s windy! Had been absolutely dreading the surgery as I’m very squeamish -especially with my eyes –but it really was over and done with in a few minutes. The surgeon put me totally at ease. Would definitely recommend.

Met John Fenton in my taxi as I was driving him home, when he told me he was an eye surgeon, I told him I had been refused by three laser clinics because they felt I may need to be done twice and therefore they were not interested. John was outraged and told me he would do my eyes no matter what. He has transformed my life by freeing me of the glasses I had to put on every morning before I got out of bed to just see the floor.

One day after treatment and I am already over the moon with the results. I can't believe I can see so clearly. This is a complete miracle and I can't explain to you how much I appreciate the level of care and committment I have received. I will be recommending Mr Fenton and his team to all my family and friends. Thanks so much for making something I never thought possible a reality.

Just had my one month post-op consultation. I now have perfect vision. I cannot get over what a difference laser eye surgery has made to the normal routines in life. I can get out of the house faster in the morning because I don't have to spend time putting in lenses.

Aftercare Programme

I had eye surgery three months ago. Really happy with my experience. Staff were all great and helped to calm my nerves. I was able to go back to work after a few days but took about another two weeks to adjust to my new eyes. After that it has been plain sailing and I only regret I didn't get the surgery sooner.
